Monday night football in Chicago. Good place to go after game?

dawn65 | | Oct 14, 2012 11:29 PM

We are arriving in Chicago, Sunday morning on the 21st. Leaving Tuesday night. We are staying at the Wyndham Blake Chicago Hotel. I have no idea where it is but according to the website it is located four blocks from Grants Park and is two blocks from train station. We will be using the train, cab or walking to get around the city. At first, I had some general ideas of what to do but after reading several discussions on restaurants, I can see I need some help. We want to visit the navy pier, Willis tower and Millennium Park Cloud Gate. We want to take a tour of Wrigley Field. The French Market sounds interesting but not sure if it is close. I need to do some more research on places to visit but those are a few we know about.

I had read somewhere, that John Hancock has a place to eat and to try to make reservations around sundown. Any advice on this idea?

My big question is where should we go to dinner, before the football game on Monday and after the game to have some drinks/food? A place where we can people watch, listen to music..etc.....

We want to go to either Andy's jazz club or Green Mill I have also read about The Violet hour. Not sure how far any of these places are. We had considered those places for after the game but we are not sure if that is a good option or should we go the Jazz Club Sunday night.

We want to try Pizzeria Uno and the Bongo room. I would like to try North pond but not sure if I can get reservations this late in the planning. We heard Honey one BBQ is good but would like other opinions on that. We are in need of suggestions for other places to eat. So any advice would be appreciated.

Thanks for any suggestions!
